Quiet is Scary

As I said before knowing when to worry and when not to is the hardest part for me.

Billy Ray has been struggling with a sinus infection on top of everything else for a few weeks. He started the second course of antibiotics on Tuesday. He has been whiney and having lots of pain but he still was eager to be somewhat busy, albeit less than normal.

While he went to his Thursday vocational activities yesterday, I posted yesterday with pictures from the day before about how he was playing even sick the day before. The post was no more than published to Blogger than Billy Ray and his support staff returned home. He had refused to go to his favorite restaurant following his activity and had been irritable. He remained irritable and complained of pain until 11:30 p.m.

At 5:30 a.m. he woke up very wheezing and congested and quiet. When he is quiet, in the morning, something is up and that is always scary to me because it is hard to read. We don’t get quiet often first thing in the morning.

I talked to his primary medical provider who is going to try to get Billy Ray into an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist today.

Until next time,

Hopefully the ENT can help Billy Ray. I sure do hope that the sinus infection goes away as soon as possible.

I hope Billy Ray is OK. It is hard to know when something is wrong or how bad it really is when they do not know themselves. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks everyone:

The ENT said that Billy Ray has yeast in his throat from the antibiotics for his sinus infection. He is on a course of meds for 5 days now and then will repeat it when he finishes the antibiotics.

He is not comfortable but it is not as serious as it could have been.
